Great spot
Overall, this is a great hotel. Just keep in mind it's small...we checked in & huffed our luggage up the stairs (no lift). We let ourselves into our room to find it still hadn't been cleaned after the last guests checked out. So I went back down to the front desk and the woman there went and told housekeeping to make our room a priority, which they did. Other than that, everything was great - the room was HUGE compared to most in Europe - and nice. It looked recently updated. Breakfast was good too - and the price was right. I'd stay here again and I'd recommend it to others.

Parking was not at hotel but not too far away and secure - cost of 15 euro a night. Hotel was ok a bit tired but clean (although did have hole in sheet) but as only there 1 night didn't mention. Very central to centre though.
